Tao Te Ching, Chapter 33 ~ Lao Tzu

He who knows other men is clever;

He who understands himself has insight.

He who overcomes others has force;

He who overcomes himself is truly strong.

He who knows when he has enough is rich;

He who carries his intentions to completion is resolute;

He who finds their roots and nourishes them endures long.

He who dies and yet does not perish, has longevity.
